How do you drill your ferrules?

We used a drill press for my build, and the bits wandered slightly, so two of them in the middle are a little crooked.

Btw, that looks amazing. I love the body wood.

Thanks for the info. I'll keep that in mind when there is a next time for my guitar building...whenever that may be, most likely not for a long time.

I have a template that has the ferrule holes in them that I doublestick to the guitar and drill through that with a cordless drill since my drill press isn't big enough. Make ure you use enough doublestick tape though on my last guitar the template moved slightly not too bad though.

That deck looks cedar to me

But seriously... Nice guitar.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

LP.

I would sell My guitar for that =[

thats how much I want it.

And it doesn't have a Floyd.

if I had the moneys.

how much is it going for?

i built that deck, its out of treated pine! haha


I doooo like the idea of a trade, i would trade this for a very nice guitar $1,000+

more people are more likely to trade gear for my guitar, and usually i can sell their gear for more than i could get for mine.

Very true. I found that people get bored quickly with stuff and want a change, so will trade rather than have the hassle of selling, for you to have the profit if you are willing to put the effort in to sell it.

Dude. When I look at your Ebay adds, I see it says you are "certified as a Luthier through Luthiers International" etc.

How does that work, what do you need to do etc? Feel free to PM if you don't want to discuss it here.

Many thanks.

proper marking out should solve this. take an awl (or any other pointy thing'll probably do)and poke a little hole slap bang in the centre of the hole before you start.

It's been ages since I used a drill press, but If my memory serves me correctly you should be able to clamp work down before you drill it?? I'm not sure...

also, You can drill the holes with a smaller dia. bit 1st, then use the full size one. common practice in metalwork I think...

Is this the guitar you referred to in this thread?
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1050019&page=1&pp=40&highlight=i%27m+now+a+believer
If so, this is absolutely worth $750+. I just re-evaluated my thoughts... It's clear that this guitar was built with perfection and care, and even for people who've never heard of you, it's obvious that this is a fine instrument. I'd pay $1,000 for it, easily.
